Heart-pounding whitewater rafting excitement; unequalled anywhere on the planet!For the serious adrenaline junkies. Join the Adrift team on the Nile for the wildest ride of your life. Expect to be washed from the raft by the mighty Nile whitewater and spend some time beneath a capsized raft. Finish off your day with an exhilarating river surfing ride at Superhole on either boogie boards or one of our surfboards (if you have some surfing experience).

A once in a lifetime experience! Tutu was a great coach. Team Tutu took the 1st rapid kind of hard. But we learned after that one. It's an exhilerating, beautiful day on the Nile.You will never forget it!!
